Summer Evaluation Institute (Virtual)

June 15, 2021

It’s been an unprecedented year in education. CTE teachers have juggled various modes of teaching and learning. Students have struggled with learning CTE concepts remotely. In the meantime, we’ve had to revolutionize and modernize our practices on the fly.

Looking back, we’ve learned, grown, and become more flexible. Looking forward, the goal of the 2021 Region 4 Career & Technical Education Symposium is to take all the good we’ve learned during this unconventional year to reach, teach, and prepare more students for post-high school success.


Keynote speakers include: Jaime Casap, former education evangelist at Google; Dr. Scott Muri, superintendent of Ector County School District and former superintendent of Spring Branch ISD; and Marty G. DeLeon, attorney with the law firm of Escamilla & Poneck.
